“A game that should be enjoyed by all ” - Michael Cane, PROFFESSOR OF TITOLOGY
The game of Conebat is described as Conebaat or Cone-bat that’s origins lie in the ancient Mexican birth rituals. To play you need two teams, each consisting of four people. Each team shall have their own bat-shaped log, known as the loggerbat (roughly the same size and shape of a baseball bat), a couple of pine cones, and a flat clear stretch of land with a tree at one end. The teams shall share the tree.
OBJECT OF THE GAME:
The game is played in a similar style to cricket and baseball.
This shall be done using the loggerbat and pine cones.
The object of the game is to beat the other team by collectively scoring more ‘points’ than them.
HOW TO PLAY THE GAME:
First you need to find a nice flat clear stretch of land within a forest.
This stretch needs to have a tree at one end. This tree shall be called the wicket.
The game is played in a similar style to cricket. One teams on batting, all except the person batting MUST drink under a tree. This is an essential part of the game.
The other team shall have:
One wicket keeper
The ‘Batsman’ or ‘Batlogger’ shall stand in front of the tree with his log (loggbat) grasped firmly in both hands. He shall then have a pine cone hurled towards him. The Batter shall then hit the pinecone as far as he can. Once he has hit the cone, he MUST NOT run.
7 meters hitting distance equals ONE point.
